A Good Year Movie Review

“A Good Year” is a romantic comedy with action taking place in London, England, and in Provence, France.

Romantic scenes only take place in the last part and seem a little rushed and too sentimental, the humor, while not completely absent and not even completely flat, doesn’t offer that much entertainment.

Taking all of this into account, the movie can be…
